Description

Highway Engineering: Planning, Design, and Operations, Second Edition presents a clear and rigorous exposition of highway engineering concepts, including project development and the relationship between planning, operations, safety and highway types. The book includes important topics such as corridor selection and traverses, horizontal and vertical alignment, design controls, basic roadway design, cross section elements, intersection and interchange design, and the integration of new vehicle technologies and trends. In addition, the book provides computer exercises using AutoCAD Civil 3D computer tools to generate, evaluate and produce innovative designs solutions, along with end of chapter exercises.

This updated edition with the current design policies and reference manuals is essential for highway, transportation, and civil engineers who are required to work to these standards.

Key Features

  • Provides an updated resource on current design standards from the Highway Capacity Manual and the Green Book
  • Covers fundamental traffic flow relationships and traffic impact analysis, collision analysis, road safety audits and advisory speeds
  • Presents the latest applications and engineering considerations for highway planning, design and construction
